What's Your Name?

I’ve often thought of how much fun it must have been for Adam to name the animals.  Today’s version of that fun, for me, would be naming nail polish colors.  

God loves to give new names to people.  Abram and Sarai became Abraham and Sarah.  Jacob became Israel.  Simon became Peter.  Saul became Paul.  In Heaven we will receive a new name.

God has many names – The Word, Alpha and Omega, Bright and Morning Star, I Am.

Each new stage of my life has brought me a new name – Daughter, Sister, Friend, Wife, Mother and Writer are a very few examples.

Some of our names are true – Child of God, Friend of God, Beloved. 

Some of our names are lies – Stupid, Ugly, Useless, Screw-up.

There is great power given when a name is bestowed, or one is bestowed upon us. 

What names have you been given?  Which are true?
